The northwest face of Annapurna came perfectly into view on the trail from Miristi Khola to Annapurna North Base Camp.

Arrive at the first French Base Camp (4190m) 3 hours after leaving from Miristi Khola camp. The first French Base Camp is in a nice location at the foot of the north Annapurna Glacier next to a beautiful aquamarine glacial lake, the beginning of the Miristi Khola. It's on an area covered with brown covered gray sand and scattered strands of grass.
From the first French Base Camp there was a good view of the rocky north Annapurna glacier leading to the icefall that curves around leading to the north face of Annapurna.
The panoramic view from the first French Annapurna North Base Camp was spectacular from Nilgiri to Tilicho Peak, the Grande Barriere, and, of course, dominating everything Annapurna! “Far above, so high that one had to tilt one’s head backwards to see it, was Annapurna, resplendent, dominating everything.
“The huge north face with all its rivers of ice shone and sparkled in the light. Never had I seen a mountain so impressive in all its proportions. It was a world both dazzling and menacing; the eye was lost in its immensities” (Maurice Herzog, Annapurna).
